Being included in a great big brick of a book called Rock Country is a turn-on. One thing I love is a good editor, and Christian Ryan goes the extra kilometre. My story is about Michael Hutchence, Ollie Olsen, Max Q... and was Michael happy? Some of my favourite pieces are Clinton Walker on Barry Gibb, Jeff Jenkins on early Ian 'Molly' Meldrum and... well most of them. And then there's the photos, oh God the photos. There's never been such a wild and ambitious compendium on Australian music history. So do yourself a Molly, and buy someone one for Christmas.
